On Monday, I was in Santa Cruz.
On Tuesday, I was with Adam, at Westside Auto. Adam...
Me...oh wait, I need to smile...
Here I am again. I don't remember holding the camera upside down, but apparently I did. I could blame it on the sun, but on second thought, the photo looks better this way...more balanced. ;)
On Thursday, I finished up my BOTV website submissions, most of which have been posted. Our 2012 entry form is now online, along with pictures of the 2011 winners.
On Friday, I drove to San Carlos, to babysit. I thought Penny (or her mother) might like this quilt.
I was right, Penny did.
Penny also liked her rice cereal.
She's starting to take over the living room. (I couldn't resist the drool...)
On Saturday and Sunday, I finished embellishing this little piece. Blogger tipped it, I did NOT hold my camera wrong this time!
I added some beads and shells and silk ribbon embroidery.
And although I was disappointed in my failed attempts to make a shell fringe, I am quite pleased with the shell & bead border. I used light-weight fire line to hold them in place. The trick to sewing on shells is to use a needle to go through the fabric, and then remove it to string the shell, and then re-thread the needle and stitch through the fabric. It's a tedious process, but I really like the result. The beads came from a shell necklace that I purchased for a dollar at a secondhand store.
And that's my week in review. Hopefully I will have more to post about during this coming week. Stay tuned...
